For this question I am using the standard definition of atheist: Answering the question "do you believe in God" with a NO.
I can't remember. I can't even remember if it was before I was married or slightly after. By the way, I was 29 when I got conned into marriage. I honestly can't remember what I believed in when I was in my early 20's, outside of the usual occasional late night worrying about what happens after death, and that the end of my consciousness (soul) was the most probable outcome.
Do you remember the day you officially became an agnostic?
Again, my answer is no. Probably in my teens. I think it had to do with a combination of the fact that religion answered nothing definitely, but science answered lots. Coupled with the vastness of the universe, existential literature I was exposed to in high school, and just the thought of the life of bugs (why God would create insects that would live for a day (to mate and die), and where does God draw the line when it comes to afterlife? Humans? Our beloved pets? Highly intelligent mammals like chimps and dolphins? Insects?
How about the last time you spoke or prayed to God with actual thought that someone was listening?
I can pin that one down a bit. I remember when I was in my teens, praying for a family friend who was diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, God chose to ignore me.
Maybe it was because I was asking, "if you exist, can you make it so that Mrs. X survives her cancer." In other words, I was still agnostic when I last prayed.
Did anger towards God or religion help cause you to be an atheist or agnostic?
No. I was never very religious, so it really didn't affect my thought process.
Here is a good one: Were you agnostic towards ghosts, even after you became an atheist?
My honest answer is yes, for a little while I think. But I don't believe that ghosts are possible anymore, probably because I've become more of a militant skeptic atheist type, reading lots of science stuff and all in the last 5 or 6 years.
Do you want to be wrong?
Of course I want to be wrong, but I'm not, and I'm as sure as sure can be about it.
I'm going to be
